Wearable, a news outlet website reporting on new human-mounted technologies, has published an article highlighting a discussion on ANSIBLE at the 2015 Web Summit. Dr. Jacki Morie and psychologist Mary Aiken dicuss using ANSIBLE as a VR solution to the psychological strain NASA astronauts may experience from prolonged spaceflight. NASA scientists participating in the isolated HI-SEAS mission are immersed in ANISBLE's virtual world, allowing them to participate in virtual activities and exchange messages with friends and family back at home. Through ANISBLE, voyaging astronauts will be able to fight off sensory monotony and keep a virtual connection to the home front.
